Laparoscopic management of stage I ovarian cancer. A case report.

Author information

  • 1Nesbitt Memorial Hospital, Kingston, Pennsylvania.


A woman with stage I ovarian cancer refused traditional treatment and was managed laparoscopically. Both ovaries were removed intact via a culdotomy incision. Vaginal hysterectomy, omentectomy and laparoscopic lymphadenectomy followed. With the increasing frequency of laparoscopic oophorectomy, it clearly seems prudent to remove ovaries intact through the cul-de-sac whenever ovarian pathology is in doubt. Although the laparoscopic approach is as yet unproven, it is an alternative for a select group of well-informed women with borderline or low-grade ovarian malignancy.
